It’s almost time to launch!

It’s been incredibly busy for the last few weeks and it’s almost time to head for the Atlantic and begin the 9 month cross-Canada trek – The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay. It’s been 25 years since Rick’s Man in Motion World Tour. We will be following Rick’s original route across the country and stopping in the same places. This time there will be 7000 participants carrying and passing the Rick Hansen Medal from Cape Spear, Newfoundland to Vancouver, BC. You can find information about the Relay at and also find links to follow on FaceBook and Twitter.

Next week I’m heading to Halifax, Nova Scotia for a 2-day mini vacation and then meeting our team of drivers to drive our large vehicles to North Sydney, NS. From there we will board the Marine Atlantic Ferry to Channel Porte-aux-Basques and then we drive across Newfoundland to St. John’s. Watch for TV coverage of the opening ceremonies on August 24 and launch of the Relay with the first Medal-Bearer from Cape Spear…the eastern-most point of land in Canada.

If you have suggestions for sights to see along the way, leave a comment. I’m always interested in finding interesting places along the road.

More to come soon!
